Amazon brings Microsoft users into AWS with Active Directory service

Amazon has launched an AWS Directory Service for Active Directory, a fully managed implementation of Microsoft’s authentication and user management service.

Using Active Directory in Amazon’s cloud will enable companies to bring applications including SQL Server, SharePoint and custom applications built with .NET onto AWS. That’s useful for businesses trying to move into the cloud from an on-premises deployment of Microsoft’s software. 

When companies start using the service, it creates a pair of domain controllers connected to a user’s virtual private cloud running Windows Server 2012 R2. Each domain controller runs in a different availability zone of a user’s choosing inside a single region, and Amazon will handle the nuts-and-bolts of managing things like host monitoring, data replication and snapshots.

Are You Making These Article Marketing Mistakes?

If you are tempted to use PLR articles, even if you rewrite them in an attempt to make them unique, remember that you will be competing with all the other shortcut seekers who are doing the same thing. It’s another shortcut to the delete key for a lot of directories.

These usually involve spelling and grammar. Spell checks your articles, even if you think you’re perfect, you will often be surprised at the mistakes you make. If you tend to misspell a word regularly, you will never correct it unless you make yourself aware of it.

If you are of the opinion that these things don’t matter (after all, people will know what you mean!) then think again. If you want to write and, more importantly, see your work published and picked up by other website owners and bloggers, you need to demonstrate an ability to write well.

As an example, all the “SEO experts” who talk about search engine optimization (sic) but don’t even understand that being able to spell their claimed occupation correctly would lend a little more credibility to their claims. Just for the record, most words ending in “ize” use a “z” and not an “s”. This is a very common mistake, but it would be corrected by the use of a spell checker, as would so many others.

If you want to write with authority, you have to be able to exhibit basic literacy. Yes, this is important and should be borne in mind by those who eulogize about “the Queen’s English”, thus making they look even more foolish than those they chastise. (a good example of a word that does actually end in “ise”) Regardless of who is on the throne, it is always “the King’s English”.

Article directory software usually allows for quick erasure of such submissions, so if you don’t want your work to fall victim to mass deletion, don’t mass submit. All that is needed is a little common sense. If you are using a submission service, set the option to stagger your submissions over a longer period of time.
